Preemie lung treatment options prove safeAccording to findings of a study in an issue of Pediatrics, preemies between 28-32 weeks of age are not harmed by a treatment option that is no longer used to help in maturing lungs. The concerned study revealed that babies’ brains remain virtually unaffected; a fact that overrules the previously believed fact that repeated courses of steroids in the womb may lead to brain damage.

It is believed that this study would provide new insights to further clinic studies in the same regard.
